Originally Answered: Why is healthy food so expensive?
Yes, some whole grain products are more expensive (bread, pasta), but you can offset this by buying cheap, healthy foods, like rolled oats (not instant- yuk!), generic cheerios or bran cereal (cheaper than sugar-laden cereal), beans, brown rice, milk, plain yogurt, eggs, peanut butter, frozen vegetables (better for you than fresh), fresh apples, bananas, lettuce, cabbage, and carrots. You're already saving money by not buying meat. Soy "milk" is expensive, it's not really milk at all and is loaded with sugar. I don't do "organic"-not worth the hugely inflated cost. Do you have an Aldi nearby? the ww bread is 99 cents, only a little more than the white, and the rest of their items are cheap too. .
